This Avengers Endgame Review is Spoiler Free.
The Russo Brothers began their Marvel cinematic journey with Captain America – The Winter Soldier, followed by Civil War and Infinity War. In each film, the Russo Brothers proved their ability to offer engaging and character-led superhero films with cross-generational appeal. However, despite their safe hands, Avengers Endgame came with significant risks. After all, how do you end a saga built around so many films and characters? While also keeping both fans and casual viewers engaged. On the whole, Endgame pulls off this tricky conundrum with a finale that hits all the right notes in all the right places. The result is a beautiful finale, full of surprises, that equally pays homage to the heroes who helped create the MCU.

The Avengers Endgame narrative picks up where Infinity War left off and focuses on loss, unspoken truths and revenge.

This allows both actors to embrace their core role in launching the MCU while equally drawing their roles an emotional close. With a three-hour run time that speeds by due to its mix of sublime performances and eye-popping action, Avengers Endgame is like no other climatic superhero finale we have seen.

However, despite all its beauty and energy, there are several weaknesses, and these centre on the new characters Marvel has introduced, many of whom feel like plot devices.

The Avenger’s journey has been a cultural phenomenon, re-igniting the superhero genre while creating a cinematic universe full of colour and diversity. Endgame is an exquisite curtain call for the characters who helped to develop the MCU.
